The Fairy's Toadstool Home
The Fairy's Toadstool Home
During a rainstorm, a fairy invites some new friends inside her tiny toadstool home...but will it be big enough to fit them all? This is another one based on a folk tale that has versions all over the world, with many variations on the item everyone fits into, from a hat to a mitten to a mushroom!  *Disclaimer, there is a fox in this story that sounds a little scary at first as it snuffles around the toadstool but it isn't hungry, just lost!  Thank you to everyone who has been adventuring with me, I'm so happy you are here! Each story is told from the top of my head and the bottom of my heart, so I hope you enjoy listening to them as much as I enjoy telling them.
